The King Ranch Story tells the love story of an ambitious young man and his dream of creating a great empire on Texas land. It's about the love between a man and woman, Captain Richard King and his wife Henrietta Chamberlain, the driving force behind King's success. It's a story of passion and power and success on a scale never seen before on this continent. From there it has grown to become an international legend.

The King Ranch has been the subject of international fascination for over a century. Added to the story are terrifying tales of ancient ghosts that still imbue many of the secret places on the ranch with a sense of mystery and fear.

The King Ranch is Texas' oldest and greatest ranch, and this book full of fascinating historical details. I did not appeciate these myths as much as the historical narrative. Rather like a trip to a museum, the writing is not excellent, but the factual content is exceptional and exciting. The stories range from riverboat adventures to Civil War cotton smuggling to early Texas marshall stories. I read every word, but was always eager to returnable to the historical portions.

Oh, no. King Ranch had become a powerhouse in Texas by the mid 1850's through livestock (some say King adopted an entire drought-stricken town of Mexicans in 1954 and "employed them") but they have deeply diversified since then. The ranch fell on some hard times in the 1920's and 30's, like pretty much everyone else in America. But things started to turn around when the first active oil well was completed on the ranch in 1939
